When I occasionally watch FOX for a few moments, I often ask myself how much the commentator is getting from Rupert Murdoch as the price of his/her soul. There are exceptions on FOX, such as Shephard Smith, Juan Williams and Geraldo Rivera, who have not sold themselves to the devil, and there may be others. How can they live with themselves when they must know that what they say is untrue? I know the pressures that employees face from their employers and the Citizens United decision has made the situation worse. In our system, you must work to live. Supreme Court decisions and the laws enacted by Congress SHOULD be designed to protect the rights of individuals. Labor unions performed this function to some extent in the past, but the GOP are warring against unions at the insistence of their masters, the 1%.
